So, my Sunday ritual is to hang out with my friend Teri, go to various craft shops in the city and then finally settling down at her kitchen table, scrapbooking and gossiping. Well, one thing I've been dying to find and decortae is a word album from BoBunny. I haven't been able to find the one I was looking for anywhere and was becoming discouraged. But, thanks to the powers that be ( and me probably asking everytime I go in there if they have it yet) Scrappin Time finally had them in. Now I have my own Love album to decorate! Ta Dah! Now, if only I could figure out exactly how I want to decorate it......

So my friends Maddie and Gabriel finally graduated high school. I feel so old now for some reason, especially when I read on the pamphlet that my favorite teachers were still there and still teaching.*sniffle* But I'm glad Nick and I went to their graduation ceremony. I'm very happy for tbe bright future they have ahead of them.

In honor of World Wide Vegetarian Week, I was very shocked and pleased when I learned Oprah was going Vegan for 21 days, as part of a fast of a new novel she's reading. I was so stoked! See, when I was younger, I started watching Oprah. And she just kinda became my idol. I love watching her show in the mornings and I love how she has the opportunity to influence millions. So, if she shares her struggles and successes with her fans, I'm sure it will be a trend to catch on. I love Oprah! I hope she keeps it up!

So I have been vegetarian again for awhile this time and its sticking pretty nicely. I have to say, it just gets easier and its been one of the best choices I've ever made for myself and my lifestyle. In honor of National Vegetarian Week, I am putting this PETA video on my blog. I watched it at work and it was just heart breaking for me to watch because I care so deeply about animals. ( Hello, I resuced a rat!) So although I won't be throwing booklets at you while you enter KFC, I just ask you be informed. Thats all. In this following video, their are 30 reasons to go veg. And now is easier than ever, with all the vegetarian options. I hope you pledge veg this year and make it stick!

So Bridgette threw Sarah a pre baby shower. Her real one is in August but Bridgette is moving so she decided to throw one last get together for us girls. She and Amanda did a great job putting it together, all I was in charge of was goody bags. We ate, opened presents and decorate t-shirts and photo frames. And we gossiped until the wee hours of the morning. Somethings will never change. :)
Athena, Amanda, Sarah, Raschelle, Bridgette

So on a recent trip home, I of course saw my sister. And she is growing like a weed! She's only 3 mths old and she giggles. And now will yack your ear off. And she likes to watch television. She's going to be in for a world of hurt when I tell her CSI Las Vegas collects all their evidence wrong. I know Nick sure was. :)

So I stole this from Jamie's blog. I love how correct and funny she is. Please take it and see if you can tell the difference between McCain and Bush. I couldn't, their both dips. :)

So about three months ago, I ventured into Petco to buy some crickets for our lizards when I saw a huge free sign on a table by the front entrance. Next to the free sign was a 10 gallon tank with a rat in it. She was cute and furry and feisty. I asked the manager why was she free and she said it was confirmed earlier that morning by the vet that the rat was blind in one eye. But she was only free if she were going to a good home. I brought her back to my club with me in a heart beat.
So this weekend I realized that it was going to be a three day weekend at my work and I brought her home with me on Thursday. And I think Nick fell in love with her because he's begging me to keep her home with us. I'm not sure if she will be staying but she sure is loveable enough. Here are some photos. ( They are kinda blurry but she was acting like she needed Prozac)
So I am very sad to report that Bridgette is moving across the country to be with her lovebug. *sniffle* She is a busy bee getting ready, so this past Saturday night we squeezed in a Girls Night Out in Viva Las Vegas. She had never really been to the clubs before so I took her to Pure & Rain. I'm gonna miss this girl but I know she is going to have the the time of her life in Florida. Love You Bridge! <3

Dear Tori Spelling,
Must I say, your book rocked my socks off! I was never a big fan, all the t.v movies I've seen with you in them could never hold my attention long enough and I'm just a tad bit young to remember the 90210 craze. But when I settled down to read your autobiography, I just couldn't get enough of you. :) Your book made me laugh so hard I woke Nick up when he was sleeping. It made me sneak peeks of it at stop lights. When I should have been reffing a game of pool between 11 yr olds, I was reading about your crazy roommate Pete. I loved your show on Oxygen because I tend to see so many simularities between us and now it's official. I'm a huge fan! I want to meet for lunch one day and talk about your jewelery making, your ways out of debt and your infamous daisy dress. And most of all, I just want to laugh with you.
